At Mid Essex ITT, we believe that trainee well-being is one of the most essential aspects of the training year, and this is why we continue to make this our highest priority.
We believe that it is important to support our trainees in any way that we can in order to make them resilient, empathetic and robust individuals. We employ a range of strategies that we believe allow our trainees to focus on the demands of the training and academic rigour. You can read more about these in more detail by downloading our Well-being Booklet below.
Here's what two of our trainees have to say about how they felt supported during their training:
Trainee MFL teacher, Moulsham High:
During my training year MEITT have been incredibly supportive and put the well-being of its students first, particularly during such a turbulent year. They were always very approachable and made you feel comfortable going to them with any issues or questions. They listened to the needs of the cohort and ensured that the programme evolved with the ongoing pandemic and its implications so that the trainees always felt supported, mentally and emotionally."
Trainee English teacher, Notley High School:
"Mid Essex has been nothing but kind and supportive during my time here. Teacher training was challenging at times for me and Mid Essex had so many options in place to support me. The support changed my life and I cannot thank them enough for it."
